A linguistic map is a thematic map showing the geographic distribution of the speakers of a language, or isoglosses of a dialect continuum of the same language. A collection of such maps is a linguistic atlas.
The earliest such atlas, the Atlas Linguistique de la France, was published by Jules Gilliéron between 1902 and 1910, followed by the Deutscher Sprachatlas of Georg Wenker and Ferdinand Wrede, published 1926-1956, and the Sprach- und Sachatlas Italiens und der Südschweiz of Karl Jaberg and Jakob Jud, published 1928-1940. The first English linguistic atlas was published by Hans Kurath.
